I thought of a song that was in keeping with the theme, and considering people who know me already know that I love old songs, if I expose myself to any criticism of posting old music in preference to the latest hits, I think this becomes a moot point.

So here is a song from 1952, the wonderful Kay Starr singing Wheel of Fortune.

The wheel of fortune
Goes spinning around
Will the arrow point my way?
Will this be my day?

Oh, wheel of fortune
Please don’t pass me by
Let me know the magic of
A kiss and a sigh

While the wheel is spinning, spinning, spinning
I’ll not dream of winning, fortune or even fame
While the wheel is turning, turning, turning
I’ll be yearning, yearning
For love’s precious flame

Oh, wheel of fortune
I’m hoping somehow
If you ever smile on me
Please let it be now

While the wheel is spinning, spinning, spinning
I’ll not dream of winning, fortune or even fame
While the wheel is turning, turning, turning
I’ll be yearning, yearning
For love’s precious flame

Oh, wheel of fortune
I’m hoping sometime
If you ever smile on me
Please let it be now
